The spirit of the mass is broken; the original excitement about losing or winning, through which danger was forgotten, is spent, and to the majority danger now appears no longer an appeal to their courage, but rather the endurance of a cruel punishment. -- “On War”, Carl von Clausewitz.....(

Reading the title my first thought was that was too poetic for a boxing article. :D

But I like the author's piece on Pac-Diaz as well. Good prose that guy.

it was simply his wit and power that made corrales the victor over castillo during their first meeting... courage? well, both of the fighters have shown that, that's why both camp agreed for a quick rematch... when corrales went down on their rematch, they agreed again to meet for the third time.... sadly, tragedy befell... castillo and corrales 1 was truly an amazing fight, i remembered to have shouted in victor because i was rooting for corrales that time... it was a stellar performance for both guys... hands down...
